I haven’t been to the annual Shetland craft far or a while so I thought I would pop by.
There was a huge variety of stalls offering a wide range of amazing crafts.
Basically, my task was do some Christmas shopping.
I succeeded on a few things but really I just saw stuff I wanted for me. Just me. No one else. Like this terrier.
The fried egg plates (swoon) and the beautiful wild egg plates (OMG! – want, want, want).
Everyone was crafting. Gloves – can I have too many? I particularly wanted the one on the model hand. Loving the striped cuffs.
Lots of useful stuff.
There was a good Christmas feel and theme.
These clever puffins caught my eye.
Fair Isle clothes pegs – who knew?
These wall pieces were incredible.
Being Shetland, there was knitting.
Shetland folk are so clever.
These nip glasses were wonderful. I seriously hankered after just one.
There could’ve been more of a sheep theme going on, but perhaps it was good this picture was already sold – I may have no more actual hanging space for any pictures. Ceilings? Can you put pictures on ceilings?
Chocolate with gin – all my favourite food groups. Nuff said.
Beautiful Hardanger fiddles – a traditional eight string instrument that originates from Norway.
Exquisitely decorated and played beautifully. I stayed and listened.
So much to look at.
Wow – this picture is just wow!
This tree made me smile. Perfect for the minimalist Christmas.
Awesome Fair Isle. I need those Fair Isle socks and maybe the gloves with the matching hat.
